I’ve read a bit about Hyperdocs over the last few years. It hs never made complete sense to me, it seems to be trying to recreate webpages with google documents.
I wonder if https://glitch.com might point to a better way? It certainly would solve the template problem…
Listened to Artificial intelligence explained on Kara Swisher Recode Decode podcast – Recode
Instead of talking about far-flung super-intelligent AI, they argued on the latest episode of Recode Decode, we should be talking about the ways AI is affecting people right now, in everything from education to policing to hiring. Rather than killer robots, you should be concerned about what happens to your résumé when it hits a program like the one Amazon tried to build.
“They took two years to design, essentially, an AI automatic résumé scanner,” Crawford said. “And they found that it was so biased against any female applicant that if you even had the word ‘woman’ on your résumé that it went to the bottom of the pile.”
Great listen. The comparison of how China is implementing AI, at a national level, compared to the huge corporations made me think.
You’re looking at a set of practices, in that case, that is pretty similar to a social credit score in China, but under different auspices. The public is not aware, there is no process of acknowledgement or consent there. This is happening sort of under the cover of proprietary private sector tech that is actually not disclosed to the people that it’s going to affect.
As I see it, the best things schools can do for kids is to help them learn how to distinguish useful talk from bullshit. I think almost all serious people understand that about 90% of all that goes on in school is practically useless, so what I am saying would not require the displacement of anything that is especially worthwhile.

My link is to a pdf of the talk from 1969.

A good fun read with many cringe points, which of the forms of BS have you used? I’ve used a lot.
Jeffery Zeldman argues that in being unable to pay mortgage associated with the web, we have become indebted to the mob that is platform capitalism. This has led us into the money trap, which demands unrealistic rewards that care more about clicks than community. Zeldman’s suggestion on how to fix...
